    Gravity (in 3D) 6.5/10

    I don't think the 3D is worth the extra cost

    I remember the tension and background music of the original kept me on edge big time

    Escape Plan.. 1 billion out of 10, simply because Stallone and Arnol combine forces... I couldn't measure my testosterone levels

    Bad Grandpa - 3/10. There's a few good laughs in there, but for the most part it's pretty meh.

    "Blair Witch Project"

    Have to watch BWP (again) during Halloween season.

    It's amazing to think what influence this movie has had since it came out almost 15 years ago.

    I mean the whole "lost footage" thing has shown up repeatedly in other movies and on TV. I won't chronicle them... but it's a long freakin list!

    It's a good movie... Not great as in "The Shining" great or "Halloween" great or "Dawn of the Dead" great (by the way I'm talking about all originals here) but it's a good movie that's made better by premise of it being a documentary.

    I do like the part...

    "Michael... Why are you laughing?"

    "Because I kicked the blankety-blank map into the creek!"

    8/10.

    BTW, what movie influenced the folks that made "Blair Witch"?

    Charles Pierce and his "The Legend of Boggy Creek".

    4/10. I've never seen the original so I can't compare, but this was definitely unimpressive. The acting was pretty bad outside of maybe Moretz and Moore. I saw a musical version a few days before and despite the time wasted for singing, there was more depth.

    Liked it too. Also, the film was made for a piddling $500,000 to $750,000, ended up making $249 mil.

    Another good "found footage" movie was "Cloverfield".

    The Iceman- 8/10

    Good movie about the famous contract killer 'The Iceman' who reigned from 1964-1989 If I remember correctly. He gets hired by the mafia and starts contract killing while keeping a completely normal family life for all these years. Good movie with good acting I'd say so definitely give it a watch. It's at RedBox as well.

    "Contagion"

    It had its moments, but I can't really give it a strong nod. 6 out of 10.

    "Snow White and the Huntsman"

    The highlight of this film was the giant troll midway through the film who reminded me exactly of a forum poster here.

    6.2 out of 10

    I always thought Cloverfield was pretty underrated.

    Not sure why it wasn't liked by more. Or at least it seemed like a lot of people didn't really care for it.

    I never knew that about Boggy Creek. I remember seeing that at the drive in when I was a kid.

    Yeah, what Charles Pierce did at the time was unique... A horror film/documentary combo.

    Yeah, "Cloverfield" was a darn good movie.

    About the only part I had a quibble with was at the end when the helicopter crashes and they don't figure out the creature is right there next to them.

    But anywho...

    Another good one that features the this type of angle is "Troll Hunter".

    "Straw Dogs" 2011 version.

    Brutal movie...

    Kind of a combination of "Texas Chainsaw Massacre", "Last House on the Left" and "Deliverance".

    Rape scenes always have bothered me... And this "gem" had two of them.

    I'll have to go back and see the 1971 version which is suppose to be better.

    5/10.

    Ender's Game - 6/10. Okay sci-fi flick. Nothing all that great or exciting. Lack of any real threat kind of limits how much we care.
